Hot shot loads are time-sensitive freight that can be delivered with smaller trucks and trailers to easily accessible locations. This can include flatbed trailers that are 40’-50’ in length, box trucks, or removable gooseneck trailers. Hot shot rigs are commonly used to transport construction equipment and other kinds of machinery that needs to be transferred quickly between sites.
Delivering hot shot loads is often a good way for fledgling hot shot truckers to get their footing. Hot shot loads require smaller vehicles and trailers, which can significantly reduce startup and operating expenses. DAT lets you see all the hot shot loads available in your area, giving you access to more opportunities to grow your business.
